This page covers biological details of component Liver. Region is part of aHuman target integrated biological model.

  • Top-down path to region: Target -> Human Effectors (aHumanEffectors) -> Liver (TARGET.TEA.LIVER) (see Mind Maps)
  • Type: effector
  • Brain area: Effector Area
  • Role: targeteffector
  • Function: Blood Sanity




Component items:

  • Liver sensory data (liver-sensory-data)
    • Liver - glucose and osmoreceptors (glucose-and-osmoreceptors -> LPC.PN.SG.NOD): sensation of lipids, glucose, and metabolites (after eating and drinking) and triggers the nervous system to make appropriate physiological changes
    • Liver - visceral receptors (visceral-receptors -> LPC.PN.SG.LDRG): pain from the liver parenchyma
  • Liver - abdominal alimentary tract glands (LAC.PN.PSYM.GUT -> glands): Increase plasma protein synthesis and secretion
